Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) 1 Day Workshop

A workshop in VTS teaching strategies

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is a powerful student-centred teaching methodology that has been proven to strengthen students’ oral communications, literacy and creative and analytical skills among students of all ages. VTS uses facilitated discussion to practice respectful, democratic, collaborative problem-solving among students, which transfers to other classroom interactions and beyond. In this one-day workshop, participants will look carefully at selected artworks, talk about what they observe and be encouraged to support their interpretation with visual evidence. Through open-ended inquiry and engagement with visual art, listening to others and hands-on practical experiences, participants will learn how to facilitate VTS in their own classrooms and communities.
